This rustic Bay Ridge wine bar—outfitted with exposed brick, a tin ceiling and chalkboard-menu wall—focuses on lesser-known varietals, small-production vineyards and local wineries, like Bridgehampton's Channing Daughters and Brooklyn Oenology. Sip your glass at the maple bar and nibble on small plates, including D. Coluccio charcuterie, Stinky Bklyn cheeses and panini, like one made with smoked chorizo, aged Manchego and chestnut puree on an Il Fornetto ciabatta.

One of the spots to make a largely uncool neighborhood a super-cool one. They know their wine, the bartenders can carry a conversation on any cool topic, and the carefully curated selection of music and offbeat films is guaranteed to keep you entertained if you come alone. If you have a date - surprise! you'll be able to have a conversation: the spot is never too noisy to hear what your companion is saying. Oh, and their food rocks, too.
Unique wines and beers, something very different for the neighborhood and worth coming out of your way for.
